Marilyn Hacking

Marilyn Joyce Siddoway Hacking, age 82, returned to her Father in Heaven's arms on November 6th, 2015, surrounded by her family. She was born April 3, 1933 in Vernal to James Raymond and Tess Hatch Siddoway. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and throughout her life had callings in the Relief Society and Primary. She was a member of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers and was a volunteer as a Pink Lady at the Vernal Hospital. She had a zest for life from the time she was a young girl and enjoyed life to the fullest. Some of the things that made her life complete were being in the Funtastics Clogging group. She enjoyed doing this for years with friends and her sister, Beverly. Clogging was not the only dance style she enjoyed. Just get her out on the dance floor and she would do the Charleston, jitterbug, twist, two step, swing-you name it she could do it and loved every minute of it. The Old Imperial Hall was her favorite dance hall. Animals in any shape, form or size were the love of her life from the time she was a small child. She was always there to take care of, rescue and love any animal that came along. Dogs, cats and horses being her favorites, but really it didn't matter what kind of animal. She was there to be their advocate and protector. She had more than enough love for all of them and they all loved her in return. The new little grandbabies and great grandchildren that came along for her to spoil and love were some of the best times in her life. She would sing and dance with them all to give them a taste for the first time of what dancing was all about. As the children grew some of the things she liked to do with them were: go to any activity that they were involved in whether it was dance recitals or sports events-baseball being one of her favorites. She even bought herself a pair of roller blades so she could go with the grandkids. The grandkids loved grandma's: candy drawer that they all had access to, Christmas presents, the dolls in the basement, and one of their favorites was playing hide and seek with her. Her most important calling was being a mother. She loved her family including parents, brother and sisters and all her relatives. She had 3 children, Linda, Jimmy and Tara and was blessed with 11 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. She named herself Grandma G after she became a great grandma which stood for Grandma Great. She is survived by her husband, Jude Hacking, her children Linda Murray, Jimmy Caldwell, Tara (David) Merkley, 11 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, Sister Dorothy (Dave) Anderson, brother, Jim Siddoway, 4 stepchildren, 10 step grandchildren, and 24 step great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Tess Siddoway, her sister, Beverly Merkley, her son-in-law, Mike Murray and a stepson, Rod Hacking. She will be greatly missed and will be loved forever and always.
